they give no credibility to this report whatsoever. they said, quote, pela who is the u.n. human rights chief has talked to, quote, nonsense in the past and they are sort of trying to brush this off but it is something will carry a lot of weight internationally. the united states nations head of human rights wants to take syria to the international criminal court and that would be something that would up the ante considerably, zoraida. >> thank you very much. frederik pleitgen reporting live for us in damascus. >>> allen gross was in prison four years ago in cuba. now in a new letter he appeals for president obama to personally intervene in his case saying extraordinary steps have been taken for other americans. the letter will be delivered today. part of a new strategy by his family to put direct pressure on the white house. a copy was given to "the washington post." >>> major snowstorm is set to hit part of the country! >> i know. it doesn't feel that like here. it's warm here. >> it is. indra petersons is covering that for us. >> i want to give you a jump-start. >> this is bad news?
the weekend u.n. inspectors arrived to begin inspections on a nuclear facility there. president obama called it a critical first step before adding that the negotiations will in no way weaken the position of the united states. >> if at the end of six months it turns out that we can't make a deal, we're no worse off and, in fact, we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and even strengthen them. if you ask me what is the likelihood that we're able to arrive at the end state i was just describing earlier, i wouldn't say that it's more than 50/50. but we have to try. >> defense secretary chuck hagel has touched down in pakistan today. the first time in three years a pentagon chief has visited that country. hagel met with their prime minister to discuss tensions over drone strikes and military operations near the border with afghanistan. he spent the weekend in afghanistan visiting u.s. troops. he did not meet with afghan president hamid karzai who is refusing to sign a security agreement with the united states before the end of the year. secretary

inspectors from the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog toured the heavy water reactor at iraq. a sign that while there's plenty of scepticism some progress was already under way. robert, the president towed a careful line here. i thought his remarks were interesting. it seems like we're in the middle of what our good friend david axelrod likes to call kabuki theater, confident but not overconfident. i wonder about the deal back and forth between president obama and members of his own congress like bob menendez pushing this renewed sanctions deal. >> i do think you've got the potential collision of a lot of different time lines. the president, i think, is realistic to say there's a possibility of a deal but the deal can long move forward long-term if iranians are willing to do things. if he understands that from colliding time lines politically you've got congressional members from both parties pursuing sanctions. you've got israelis against this deal. i think the one important thing the president has in his pocket, so to speak, the american people are supportive of a deal because they are so incredibl

ago, bill richardson, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., he went to cuba hoping to bring alan gross out of cuba with him. they wouldn't even let him see alan gross. >> that's right. that's right. and he -- they got very upset with some of the words he used when he spoke. and so that was an excuse for him not to visit alan. >> so let's be precise. what would you like president obama to do? >> i think you'd have to ask him what it takes. i want obama to take alan seriously. to take the situation seriously. he's the leader of the nation. he's the one who can go to the state department, to go to the justice department. whatever department's involved and say, let's make this work. he could do it tomorrow if he wanted to. >> but they all have issued statements that they would like alan gross freed. they're doing what they can. but they're not about to release those four cuban prisoners in the united states, if, in fact, that is the cuban demand. >> we don't know if that's the cuban demand, and as far as i'm concerned, and excuse me for sounding angry, but all of those statements have noth

. with respect to the pakistan, there was never the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented. and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why you know, we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, you know, we're being naive, what i try to describe them is not the choice between this deal and the ideal. but the choice between this deal and other alternatives. i mean, if i had an option, if we could create an option in which iran eliminated every single nut and bolt of their nuclear program and foreswore the possibility of ever having a nuclear program and for that matter got rid of all its military capabilities, i would take it. but. >> last question. >> but sorry. haim, i want to make sure everybody understands. that will particular option is not available. as a consequence, we have
